I recently recorded a standard rock band with 9 mics as follows: Beta 52 - Kick Snare Top: Beta 57 Snare Bottom: SM57 High Tom: SM57 Low Tom: Beta 57 OHs: Earthworks TC30s High Hat: Kel Audio HM-1 Room Mic: Mojave MA-200 Everything came out great except the Bottom Snare. I placed it about 2 inches below the center of the bottom head and all I got was the sound of the actual snare beads (soory don't know what they are called). It sounds miserable. I was hoping to add some depth to the snare by reversing the phase of the bottom mic and mixing the two together. What am I doing wrong? Should the bottom mic be further from the bottom of the snare? Should I put the mic off center so that it doesn't pick up as much of the actual "beads?" Any help would be appreciated. I am doing teh other half of the drum tracks tomorrow with the band. Thanks, Mike T.
